If you have a touch of the pioneering spirit, take a horse-drawn carriage ride north of the Historic Nauvoo Visitors’ Center and hear good stories and see great views!
This 45-minute scenic tour takes you through a wooded area to Inspiration Point, where you can overlook the “Mighty Mississippi” at one of its widest points. You can also hear the touching story of the death of King Follet, a dear friend of Joseph Smith, at whose funeral Joseph preached.
